Halloween Dress Up Tips

Halloween is round the corner, but you're on a tight budget. How to dress up for the season without burning a hole in your pocket?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Ghost: this is always an inexpensive costume. Just cut holes in an old sheet. Cut holes in it, draw on some chains, spider web, etc.. with a permanent marker
  • Angel: Use a sheet like for the ghost, spray it lightly with some clear spray paint and toss glitter on it before the paint has a chance to dry. Make a halo and the wings out of clothes hangers covered with aluminum foil
  • Ninja: Black clothes. Make a ninja mask out of a small scrap of black cloth. Instead of buying make believe weapons, make them out of card- board and color and cover with aluminum foil - easy to make Ninja stars, knife. Use long stick or old broom handle for a bo, take two paper towel rolls, connect with piece of twine, cover them with black construction paper and you have num-chucks
  • Undead Bride: Dig out your old bridesmaid dress, let your hair down and wield a fake axe. Touch-ups include eyeliner, black lipstick and gargle syrup to make your teeth have natural red glow
  • Nerd: Too small pants, shirt buttoned up wrong, hair slicked back, old pair of glasses with tape, white socks, BIG book to carry under your arm
